We are celebrating the first pump at the Spa Wells 150 years ago. Ruairí Ó Conchúir, Community Water Officer will give an overview of the local waterways and how community can look after it.
We are kicking off our week long celebration of our towns life giving rivers. Lisdoonvarna was established as a tourist centre almost entirely because of its spa. It was the centre around which the town developed. There was no earlier village, just a few scattered cottages. People came from miles for the water rich in Iron, Sulphur and Magnesium). Ruairí, Community Waters Officer, is helping with a water catchment plan.
